Mozart: Le nozze di Figaro DVD (Opéra national de Paris)

Notify me when this product is available:

Lorenzo da Ponte’s libretto and Mozart’s music were to transform the stock characters of the opera buffa tradition into real human beings, making Le Nozze di Figaro one of the most sophisticated operas of all time. A charming, expressive and witty Figaro, Lorenzo Regazzo leads a sparkling cast to illustrate superbly the timeless humanity of this masterpiece. Christoph Marthaler’s take on Mozart’s classic is both daringly original and highly contemporary, the setting transposed to a wedding-dress shop lit with neon lights and a shabby register office.
